    The Amy Winehouse Foundation has announced it will open a home for women recovering from drug and alcohol addictions. The house will open Monday, August 1st, almost exactly five years after the singers death, and will be known as Amy's Place.

    The recovery house is based in East London and "aims to help recovering female addicts reintegrate into society and sustain their recovery. It will be made up of 12 self-contained apartments, four of which are two-bed, and can house up to 16 women," reports The Guardian.

    Dominic Ruffy, the Amy Winehouse Foundation special project director, told the outlet, "There are about six women-only rehabs, and beyond that, there's an even greater paucity of women-specific recovery housing beds. There is only one other women-only recovery house in London and it's only a four-bed with a six-month waiting list."

    Amy's stepmother and a trustee of the Winehouse Foundation, Jane Winehouse, said, "This project will make such a profound difference to so many young women, enabling them to have a safe environment in which to rebuild their lives and put into practice all the learning they have acquired through their treatment journey. Fresh starts are difficult to make, full of challenges, but at Amy's Place, we will give young women the tools and support to help make this a reality."
